    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of November 3–5
    Shawn Brackbill

    Fleet Foxes begin the next leg of their European Crack-Up tour with a set at Harpa Eldborg in Reykjavik, Iceland, on Saturday, as part of the Iceland Airwaves festival. The tour—the band's first European headline shows in six years—continues with shows in Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, UK, Sweden, and Norway. Fleet Foxes released a behind-the-scenes video of their recent US tour directed by Sean Pecknold yesterday; you can watch it here.

    Crack-Up was released on Nonesuch in June to widespread critical acclaim. "Likely to be the most remarkable album you will hear this year," exclaims the Times of London. "The return of one of the most original bands of this century." Pitchfork says it's the band's "most complex and compelling album to date" and Uncut calls it “astonishing … a recipe for total entertainment forever.”

    John Adams’s Road Movies is performed by violinist Leila Josefowicz and pianist John Novacek at 92Y’s Kaufmann Concert Hall in New York City on Sunday. Josefowicz and Novacek made the first recording of the piece, released on Nonesuch in 2014. The New York Times praised the “freewheeling violin and piano work,” and Pitchfork called it a “quiet masterpiece.”

    Sam Amidon continues his autumn tour of Europe, in support of his new album, The Following Mountain, with a show at the Theater am Ring studio in Saarlouis, Germany, tonight, Ancienne Belgique in Brussels on Saturday, and Bitterzoet in Amsterdam on Sunday. Amidon concludes the tour next week in Ireland, with shows in Dublin and Cork. The Irish Times gives The Following Mountain four stars, calling it “breathtaking … a fascinating signpost to the future.”

    Pianist Jeremy Denk gives a recital as guest artist at Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University tonight. The program includes Mozart’s Rondo in A Minor, Prokofiev’s Vision fugitives, Beethoven’s Sonata No. 30 in E Major, and Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes. Denk offers a free master class at the university’s Ganz Hall on Saturday morning.

    ---

    Rhiannon Giddens joins the Louisville Orchestra for the world premiere of composer Teddy Abrams’s The Greatest: Muhammad Ali at Whitney Hall on Saturday. The New York Times says that Giddens’ voice is “a perpetually soulful marvel.”

    ---

    Richard Goode gives a recital at University of Wisconsin’s Shannon Hall in Madison on Saturday. The pianist performs selections from Bach, Berg, Beethoven, and Chopin.

    The Los Angeles Times calls Goode’s approach to Bach “a small miracle of sensitivity, expression and nuance,” while the New York Times describes his Beethoven performances as “remarkable” and “surprisingly intimate,” praising his playing both for its “organic naturalness” and “unerringly lyric sensibility.” The San Francisco Examiner applauds the "exploratory, spontaneous charge" the pianist brings to Chopin’s music.

    ---

    Emmylou Harris performs at Paramount Arts Center in Ashland, Kentucky, tonight, Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga on Saturday, and Alys Stephens Center in Birmingham on Sunday. The New York Times has called Harris “the reigning queen of Americana.” The Wall Street Journal says: “Her voice remains an open channel for otherworldly beauty, earthy and ethereal in equal measure.”

    ---

    Kronos Quartet performs at Federal Way Performing Arts Center in Federal Way, Washington, on Saturday. On the program are works by Laurie Anderson, George Gershwin, Omar Souleyman and more, including the world premiere of Yegeniy Sharlat’s Pencil Sketch, written and composed for Kronos’ Fifty for the Future commissioning project.

    ---

    Portuguese singer Mariza, currently touring select US cities, performs a special acoustic set of stripped-down traditional Fado at Pollak Theatre in West Long Branch, New Jersey, on Sunday. The tour continues at City Winery venues in Chicago, Boston, and New York in the coming weeks.

    Mariza's album Mundo, which earned her the Songlines Best Artist of the Year award following its international release in 2015, was released in the US on Nonesuch in 2016. Songlines called it "an unalloyed triumph."

    ---

    Audra McDonald joins the Toledo Symphony, conducted by Andy Einhorn, for a performance at the Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle in Ohio on Saturday. The multiple Tony Award–winning singer also gives a free lecture at University of Toledo’s Doermann Theatre on Sunday afternoon.

    McDonald was recently named the recipient of the 2018 Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT.

    ---

    Pat Metheny, who has been named Guitarist of the Year in the DownBeat Readers Poll once again, continues his European tour with drummer Antonio Sánchez, pianist Gwilym Simcock, and bassist Linda Oh in Germany, playing Narodowe Forum Muzyki in Wrocław, Poland, tonight; and MOMsport in Budapest, Hungary, on Saturday; followed by a sold-out show at Jazzit Musik Club in Salzburg, Austria, on Sunday.

The Financial Times gives a recent show in London four stars, writing that “Redman’s trio distills jazz tradition to its essence and reshapes it anew … the band’s interplay, clarity of sound and innate sense of form were inspired.”

    ---

    Rostam launched a European tour of music from his recently released debut, Half-Light, earlier this week, which continues with a sold-out set at Weissenhäuser Strand in Holstein, Germany, tonight, as part of Rolling Stone Weekender, and a show at Musik & Fieden in Berlin on Sunday.
